Sample Answer

I will not call myself a bibliophile, but I also won’t deny that I like to read. Due to my busy schedule, I don’t get much free time for myself, but I still manage to finish a book in a month. Today I will be describing one of the books that I read that has become my favourite. The book was given to me by my best friend on my 20th birthday. To be honest, I started reading it a month ago. I had been procrastinating it until my friend asked me about its review. I felt extremely awkward, so I decided to at least start. I had no information regarding its content or about the author as soon as I finished the first page. I couldn’t resist finishing the book. To my surprise, I finished it within a span of 15 days. It was my first book that I completed so quickly. The book is The Power of a Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, who is an Irish-based author famous for his excellent self-help books. The book revolves around the undiscovered and highly underestimated power of our subconscious mind. The books talk about techniques to harness the power of your subconscious mind for personal growth and success. It helped me a lot to overcome all my insecurities due to my lower thinking level. I will highly recommend this book to everyone who is finding it difficult to face their mental changes.
